I asked that a while back.  I think the answer was that nothing happens. 
I believe the clients only know how to mark keys as possible winners and
then the bovine proxy servers check them when they come back to confirm. 
If it ends up being the magic key, then the organizers get in contact with
the email address that returned the key and if that doesn't work, they try
to find the admin for the ip address of the machine that returned it.  Of
course I could be totally wrong about that.

Before I go, let me throw in my little "Where's the v2 personal proxy?" 
blurb!! :-) 

See ya,
